Whew! We just had a wonderful week of events. The second Unity Women’s Adventure Group met on Thursday evening, and we had some women new to us in our circle. It was wonderful getting to know them. Christine Wolf brought all the material needed to make prayer beads and then led us in a meditation using our newly created beads. So, a good time was had by all.
Friday night was Kirtan and there was a fabulous turnout for this event. Thank you, Todd Glacy, for bringing your group to us. We look forward to another one in the fall.
On Sunday we were blessed with Rev. Bronte Colbert, newly retired from Unity of Athens in Athens, Georgia. Rev. Bronte talked about the spiritual tools we might need in our toolbox. She pulled out a Daily Word and she suggested you randomly open it and most likely the word and affirmation will be just what you need.
She then brought out a flashlight and reminded us how important it is to shine our light. Yes, we shine our light for others to see and to shine our light on ourselves as well. To remember our luminosity…that when we see the light in others it is reflecting back to us.
Lastly, she brought out a candle to remind us to be mindful, to be in the moment. To sit quietly and see what surfaces. This is my challenge and might also be yours. I have a very active mind and it is often on full speed ahead. So lighting the candle is a symbol to stop… listen… pay attention.
She ended her powerful message with an affirmation from Lessons in Truth by H. Emilie Cady. Here is the affirmation:
I am Spirit, perfect, holy, harmonious. Nothing can hurt me or make me sick or afraid, for Spirit is God, and God cannot be sick or hurt or afraid. I manifest my real self though this body now.
I suggest you write this out and repeat it several times a day. It will address anything that might be going on for you.
If you missed the service on Sunday, you could watch it here.
I am looking forward to the next few Sundays, as I will be doing a series on Myrtle Fillmore, Mother of Unity.
Have a blessed week and see you Sunday!
You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
